Note to Harry Reid, Congressional Democrats and Uninformed Idiots

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”


After 9/11 Obama Jumped on Divisive Bandwagon

The Associated Press reports that Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama said he doesn't wear the American flag lapel pin because it has become a substitute for "patriotism" since the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
"Shortly after 9-11, particularly because as we're talking about the Iraq war


I decided I won't wear that pin on my chest," he said in the interview. "Instead, I'm going to try to tell the American people what I believe...."
Yeap, Obama decided, like just about every other Democrat, that what he thought was more important than showing everyone that he was standing up for the country.

It's no small irony that an example of Democrat obstructionism can be displayed in something simple as throwing away a flag pin.

Oh wait, I forgot, throwing away pins and medals is a Democrat habit.

Zogby: Majority Disapprove of Higher Taxes to Fund Health Coverage

Just over a third of Americans would be willing to pay higher taxes for everyone to have health insurance, a new Aspen Institute/Zogby Poll shows. When asked if they would be willing to pay higher taxes so that all children could have health insurance, 51% of Americans said they would, with those with lower household incomes showing the most support.

One of the dirty little secret about health care for the uninsured is that the issue is already covered.

Most uninsured use the emergency room for their primary physician and that is already covered by current programs.

Libs and Dems: America is Broken

Liberals and Democrats keep saying that America is broken and that they are the ones to fix it.

I submit that in fact liberals and Democrats are what is broken about America. They are the last ones to trust with America's future.

You only need to look at the public school system, an institution completely controlled by liberals, to see what happens when they are in charge.

Traditional American values have built and made America great.

Libs and Dems are living up to their own self-fulfilling prophecy of doom despair -- and frankly they don't have the right to take us down into the gloom with them.

Clear Channel CEO Responds to Reid

Clear Channel CEO Mark P. Mays responded to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's calls to censure talk radio superstar Rush Limbaugh in a letter hand-delivered to the Democrat's office this evening.

"While I certainly do not agree with all views that are voiced on our stations, I will not condemn our talent for exercising their right to voice them," Mays wrote.

He took a respectful tone, saying he regretted that Reid and others might have been offended by Limbaugh. But, Mays wrote, he didn't believe Limbaugh's statements were "intended to personally indict combat soldiers simply because they didn't share his own beliefs regarding the war in Iraq."

Here's the letter (pdf)

Dems Declare War on Talk Radio, Low Taxes, Terrorist Get a Break

The Limpire Strikes Back Day Two

Here's a few stories that need no additional commentary.

We know who liberal Democrats are and most of us quietly put up with their crap:

Senate Democrats Condemn Rush Limbaugh

San Francisco supervisors condemn radio host Michael Savage

Democrats propose tax surcharge for war

It's about time we stopped the Democrats' war on America.

Limbaugh Demands Sen. Harry Reid's Resignation

Talk-show giant Rush Limbaugh sharply escalated his war of words with Democrats in the Senate Tuesday, calling for the resignation of Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev.
"And the thing that we ought to demand here," Limbaugh told his listeners, "is that Harry Reid step down and resign as the leader of the Democrats in the Senate, for his constant, uncontrollable contempt of our armed forces; his repeated use of our troops for political purposes. Harry Reid has failed in his mission to lead the Democrats in the Senate, to get what they want . . . He is the one who is dishonoring the troops; he is the one who is making a mockery of their service."

Liberal Dems Declare War ... On Rush Limbaugh

The Limpire Strikes Back

You can always tell when liberals and Democrats are very much on the wrong side of an issue; news about the issue will never appear on AP or Reuters.

It comes as no big surprise, then, that the current foolishness regarding the Media Matters' slandering of conservative radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh, and the resulting echo in the lefty-loonoshpere, has been simply ignored by the wire services.

Yeah, Drudge has headlined the showdown between Reid and Limbaugh, but Matt is Limbaugh's friend and the story is, after all, quite sensational.

I'll be the first to admit I listen to Limbaugh's show daily. I'll also be the fist to say I heard Limbaugh call one pathetic liar a "phony soldier." I also heard Limbaugh slam the left for using 'phony soldiers' to advance the anti-war agenda. The solders Limbaugh was talking about are ones like Jesse Macbeth, an individual who Fox News actually first called a phony soldier on 20 May.
Jesse Adam Macbeth, 23, formerly of Phoenix, garnered attention on blogs and in some alternative media after he began claiming in 2005 to have been awarded a Purple Heart for his service, which he said included slaughtering innocents in a Fallujah mosque. His story was contradicted by his discharge form, showing that he was kicked out of the Army after six weeks at Fort Benning, Ga., in 2003 because of his “entry level performance and conduct.”

A complaint unsealed Friday in U.S. District Court in Seattle charged him with one count of using or possessing a forged or altered military discharge certificate, and one count of making false statements in seeking benefits from the Veterans Administration.

Macbeth’s public defender, Jay Stansell, declined to comment.

Organizations that opposed the war, including Iraq Veterans Against the War, posted videos or statements containing Macbeth’s claims on their Web sites. In one videotaped interview, a skinny, stuttering Macbeth, dressed in a camouflage jacket, described slaughtering hundreds of people in a mosque: “We would burn their bodies ... hang their bodies from the rafters in the mosque,” he said.
If the story is not about all anti-war soldiers, what is it all about?

It's not about's attack on General Petraeus. That's too easy.

I think the story is about the far left pulling the strings of some Democrats who have backtracked on the war. Yeap, these are the same Democrats who have said the war was lost and insulted the troops. Now, these are the same Democrats who want us to believe they are for the troops.


The big problem for the left is that the top three Democrat presidential candidates have said there's no way they are going to pull troops out of Iraq before 2013. To hide this little problem, Media Matters, an outfit linked directly to Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as billionaire leftist George Soros, went on the attack to deflect attention from the issue. Quite a few reporters ran the story and quoted Media Matters as their source without ever contacting Limbaugh for his side of the issue. Additionally, on his Web site, Limbaugh posted a transcript and clips of the show containing his statements, all primary sources ignored by these so-called professional journalists.

What confuses me is -- if there is no liberal bias in the mainstream media, as so many elite journalists have claimed -- there must be a lot of dumb ass journalists who are too lazy to do their own reporting. (I can say that because I have a journalism degree, which complies with liberal dogma that states I must be a member of a clan before I can have opinions about it.)

The best thing to come out of this needless hoopla is the fact that I now easily can separate the real journalists from the yellow ones just by the way they reported this story.

Drive-By Reporting and Trigger-Happy Journalists

Some of our finest special-op soldiers serve companies like Blackwater.

Ben Ryan, a former U.S. Navy SEAL officer who spent time in Iraq as an employee of Triple Canopy, a private security firm, writing in The Wall Street Journal says, "Contrary to the popular belief that Blackwater contractors are "thugs for hire," most are highly professional and well trained. Blackwater operates the world's largest private military training facility. Its 1,000 contractors working in Iraq are drawn from the ranks of former military and law enforcement officials. Many of its workers are former SEALs or veterans of other special-operations units."

Ryan says the latest truped-up outrage involving Blackwater follows a long-established pattern of unfounded claims in the press about security contractors. For instance, numerous reports reference contractors making over $1,000 a day--far more than active-duty soldiers. Some point to the more than $700 million Blackwater has received in State Department contracts in order to denounce security firms as war profiteers.

The truth, Ryan says, is that contractors are cost-effective. Blackwater contractors, for example, are generally paid $450-$650 a day. More important, unlike U.S. servicemen, they usually receive no benefits and are paid only for the days they work. Security contractors at the better firms have typically retired from active duty or left the military on their own accord after extended service. They are honorable veterans who have chosen to risk their lives to protect American diplomats in a war zone.
Like soldiers, security contractors are sometimes forced to make split-second decisions with enormous consequences. They must be--and are--accountable to our government for their actions. But the people I worked with in Iraq, including veterans working for Blackwater, were hardly rogue cowboys. I did, however, meet some trigger-happy journalists over there.

Hillary Clinton Is Not the New Old Al Gore

Writing in the New York Times, loony lefty columnist Frank Rich attempts to remind the Democrats, when considering the presumptive Hillary presidency, there's no such thing as a "sure thing."

In his efforts to convince, of course he slimes Republicans, mis-characterizes the Iraq war and beats on President Bush. But that's the norm and not the point.

No matter how hard Rich squints to see the light, he is still looking through a cup of liberal Kool-Aid ... and that's the problem with his analysis. This isn't anything new, however. I'm reminded of the 04' presidential election when the Democrats thought John Kerry should have had won based on only their own internal polls -- so much for the actual votes; so much for reality.

The reason Hillary is not a sure thing is because she is Hillary Clinton: she is the most polarizing figure currently in American politics.

When you think about it, Republicans actually have it pretty easy for 08'; the only platform they really need to run on is embodied in the presumptive Democrat candidate herself.
